Hi everyone! I've looked all over the net for an Atlanta Braves afghan pattern. I prefer knit, but crochet will be fine too. My boyfriend keeps his house extremely cold and is a die-hard braves fan (his dog is named "Chipper", after Chipper Jones) so I think an afghan would make a great gift.

Thanks!! :happydance:

I'm sorry that I can't help you with a pattern but I am extremely interested in finding the pattern also. My daughter (19) and husband are HUGE Atlanta Braves fans. Chipper is my daughter's favorite and she wore #10 all through high school sports and now college softball. If you've ever heard about Philadelphia sports fans, you have to be extremely loyal to wear an Atlanta Braves jersey to a Phillies game. LOL!

Good luck with the pattern search!

can't help with pattern sorry, but
Could you adapt an existing pattern. change to appropriate colour scheme and add intarsia picture to it, like the logo or something.
Can use this to graph a picture.

I started looking recently for Chicago Cubs stuff and couldn't find major league baseball patterns at all. I think your best bet is just to knit it in the colors and do what is recommended.

I am doing a CUBS scarf for my son for his birthday as we are die hard CUBBIES, but I decided to just buy a patch for the opposite ends of the scarf and sew it on.

Good luck finding what you need1

GO CUBS! :woot:

Thanks for your help guys! I guess I'll try to take the logo and chart it (I've never done that before). I appreciate the suggestions! :hair:

Could you use something like these Atlanta Braves Cross Stitch Charts (http://www.the-counted-cross-stitch-store.com/servlet/the-Baseball/Categories) and adapt it for knitting? Scroll down alphabetically and there are several designs for the Atlanta Braves.
